Chrissy Teigen is never shy about showing her true self on social media — lopsided breasts and all. On Thursday, the model posted a relatable Snapchat proudly displaying her uneven chest from months of one-sided breastfeeding.
The picture showed an aerial view of Teigen’s cleavage, with one breast looking noticeably larger than the other. In her caption, Teigen admitted that the lopsidedness was a result of nursing her 1-year-old daughter, Luna, primarily on one side. (Now that she’s pregnant with her second child with her husband, John Legend, she also made sure to note that the disproportion was from her past breastfeeding experience, not to suggest that she already gave birth to No. 2.)
“View from above. I really should have nursed out of both boobs (when I nursed),” Teigen wrote.
Lopsided boobs aren’t unusual for first-time moms. The unevenness, which is already a natural trait for many women, is caused during breastfeeding when the baby prefers one breast over another, resulting in the body producing a supply that caters to the demand according to an expert at Breastfeeding Basics. Or the sizing could occur when one breast naturally produces more milk, causing it to swell larger than the other.
Plus, now that Teigen is in the midst of her second pregnancy, her breasts are changing to prepare for Round 2 of breastfeeding.
Though there are a lot of reasons one of Teigen’s boobs might be bigger than the other, one thing is for sure: She isn’t afraid to shut down body stigmas — for which we will always love her.
